Product DetailsThe Night Before Christmas Has Come and Gone...Now What? by Linda Beecham (Author) (Paperback - Jan. 29, 2010)

Alexander Pushkin

I must shamefully confess that I did not know his story. I only came across the name listening to Tavis Smiley's interview with Pushkin and the Queen of Spadesauthor Alice Randall (also the author of The Wind Done Gone, a Gone with the Wind parody). Is Pushkin discuss in our schools. I only know the name because I went to college with well rounded individuals.

Pushkin: A Biography by Elaine Feinstein ~ Other Editions: Hardcover | Paperback
Pushkin: A Biography by T. J. Binyon (Hardcover ) Other Editions: Hardcover | Paperback ~ Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin, (Alexander Pushkin), is Russia’s greatest and best-loved poet: a romantic, enigmatic figure who, during a brief but turbulent life, changed Russian literature forever with his vital and passionate verse. Many of his works—including The Bronze Horseman, The Queen of Spades, and his extraordinary novel in verse, Eugene Onegin—have become classics of world literature and are as exhilarating to read today as they were when first published. Now we have the first full biography in sixty years of this literary legend. Born in Moscow in 1799, he was descended on one side from an ancient noble family, on the other from a black African slave of Peter the Great. At the age of twenty he was expelled from St. Petersburg for his satirical writings. He remained in internal exile, under the direct supervision of the emperor, for the next seven years, and throughout his life attracted official disapproval for his political and religious beliefs—and for his many love affairs. In 1831, despite mounting debts from gambling and an insecure income, he married the eighteen-year-old Natalya Goncharova, who soon became recognized as one of the most beautiful women of St. Petersburg society. The attentions paid her by a Guards officer, the French émigré d’Anthès, roused Pushkin to fury. In the subsequent duel, fought on January 27, 1837, he was fatally wounded. He died in agony two days later.

Pushkin and the Queen of SpadesPushkin and the Queen of Spades by Alice Randall (Hardcover ) Other Editions: Hardcover | Audio Cassette (Unabridged) | Audio CD (Unabridged) The unacknowledged boom in African-American fiction continues with Pushkin and the Queen of Spades, a second novel from Alice Randall, author of the nearly banned Gone with the Wind parody, The Wind Done Gone. Windsor Armstrong is a polished, Harvard-educated African American professor of Russian literature. Her son, Pushkin X, is an exceedingly famous pro football player, an achievement that impresses his mother not at all. Even more distressing, however, is that her beloved son has just become engaged to a gorgeous white Russian émigré who also happens to be a lap dancer.
